Don't go fishing... GO CATCHING!

Salmon Fishing in Oregon & Washington

Salmon fishing in Oregon and Washington starts mid-February on the Columbia River, And Willamette River with salmon ranging from 10 to 25 pounds. The Salmon fishing in Oregon and Washington goes through June. We fish for the Spring Salmon on the Columbia River and Willamette River in Portland, Oregon.

The fall run of king salmon begins in August at Buoy 10, which is at the mouth of the Columbia River near Astoria, Oregon, and runs through September and into October. We also catch plenty of coho salmon, also known as silvers.
Tillamook Bay opens September 1st and salmon fishing there runs through the middle of November, depending on the weather.
Fall king salmon run from 5 to 50 pounds, with 25 to 30 pounds being the average. In addition to great salmon fishing in Tillamook Bay, Marvin’s Guide Service will also drop crab pots for your added adventure. Tillamook Bay always offers great crabbing for tasty Dungeness!!!

King Salmon On the Columbia River



  1. My wife & I are visiting the Salem & Portland area in late October early November. I’m inquiring if you have any open dates on November 2nd or 3rd for Salmon fishing. My understanding is that Chinock should be in full swing or we are open to suggestion. One or 2 of my brothers (Oregonians) will be fishing with us ( so 3 or 4 fishermen).
    Please include rates and a normal itinerary.
